Attorney Saia recently completed extensive training in the Intoxilizer 8000 Breath Alcohol Testing Unit, as well as a course in Gas Chromotography and Metrology, as there is a significant increase in blood testing of individuals suspected of OVI in Ohio. He has also recently completed courses sponsored by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) and the IACP (International Association of Chiefs of Police) on Drug Evaluation and Classification in order to better serve clients facing charges under the recent changes in Ohio under the Driving Under the Influence of Drugs enforcement program.
The National College for DUI Defense is a non-profit corporation that is focused on improving the level of criminal defenses against DUI charges, as well as providing information to the public about the specialty area of DUI defense. The members of the College comprise the top DUI defense attorneys in the country, who provide training to others lawyers practicing in this specialized area of criminal law. The College holds one of the largest criminal defense seminars in the country every year, as well as a course on “Mastering Scientific Evidence” for criminal lawyers.
Many OVI arrests in the state of Ohio are based upon chemical testing. It is important for a defense attorney to have a deep understanding of the testing units as well as calibration, maintenance and testing procedures. It is also necessary to understand human physiology, and the interaction of alcohol with the blood.
Attorney Saia is a well-respected seminar speaker on this subject, and continues to be at the forefront of the field of OVI and DUI defense. His practice focuses strictly upon OVI/DUI cases, and his ongoing education on the science behind breath, blood and urine testing, as well as other crucial factors such as rights violations in illegal police stops, lab processes and procedures. Attorney Saia’s training in the units used to test breath for alcohol intoxication has proven to be of significant benefit to those he represents in a range of DUI and OVI offenses.
